Preparing for Hurricane Season

Now that hurricane season is here, we want to arm you with some tips on how to safely prepare in the event of a storm! The safety of our employees and our customers is our top priority, and we are taking steps to prepare for any storm that might form this hurricane season. We are tracking weather events, making sure our equipment is working properly, and meeting with emergency management organizations across our 11-state footprint to review procedures and making sure we are ready to serve you safely and efficiently.

  • •Prepare early.
    • -Don’t wait until the last minute before landfall to prepare outside. For your safety, trim trees and prepare yards in March or April to ensure your yard waste gets collected and your home is prepared well before a storm approaches.
  • •Expect delays.
    • -Waste Pro services may be delayed or suspended prior to landfall for safety reasons. Monitor our website, Facebook, and Twitter pages for updates.
  • •Collection guidelines vary by location.
    • -Before placing your yard waste out for collection, check with your local city, town, county or parish on the requirements for information like size and weight limits and tips on how to place your yard waste out.
    • -These limits exist to keep Waste Pro drivers on schedule and ensure all homes along their routes are serviced.
  • •Secure your items.
    • -Garbage carts/cans, lawn furniture, and any other outdoor objects.
    • -Items like these could possibly become a projectile and should be brought inside or to a safe location.
  • •Storm debris collection is often contracted through FEMA, not your regular waste collection provider.
    • -If you are in an area that is impacted by a storm, please check with your local government for information about storm debris collection.
  • •Stay updated.
    • -Monitor your city/county’s websites and social media pages for information on debris cleanup, shelters, sandbags, and food/water resources.
